SAP Commerce Cloud is a popular eCommerce platform that can be tricky to test based on its near-constant state of flux with each release cycle bringing in new updates that require constant testing. eCommerce sites especially are in need of continuous testing, whether they're a B2B or B2C company. If anything goes wrong, the entire revenue stream is cut off. So, what can be done to ensure that your SAP Commerce Cloud tests are up to the task, and how can Virtuoso help your test automation journey?
End-to-end journeys are one of the most important types of tests for eCommerce sites, as these tests will more accurately simulate the customer experience. A customer journey will often look like searching for a particular item, selecting one, and going through the checkout, though it could also be the steps for browsing, interacting with account details, or leaving a review.
Generally, the goal of eCommerce sites is to grow, and sometimes that might look like growing from a two-person business into a successful enterprise. Switching tools can be stressful, so testing that scales alongside you can save you a lot of time and energy as your business develops. Parallel testing also ensures that your test suite doesn't take too long to run, and you can schedule tests as often and whenever you like. This way, you can rest easy knowing that your web app is constantly being checked and double-checked.
When switching to test automation from manual testing, one of the biggest worries is losing out on that human element. With the power of AI and ML in your functional tests, you can still test from the perspective of a user. ML also helps ensure that your eCommerce site stays on brand with robust visual regression testing so there's never a pixel out of place!
When using a platform like SAP Commerce Cloud, you get lots of little continuous updates that can affect the platform as a whole. With Continuous Testing, you can constantly validate that all your processes are working the way they should be. Sleep easy at night knowing that if anything goes wrong, you'll get alerted the moment a test fails.
If you're using SAP Commerce Cloud, then you need robust test coverage that can handle testing your eCommerce site to ensure all your processes are running smoothly. The above solutions are pretty great, but in case you need more convincing to take our two-week free trial for a spin, then maybe self-healing tests, plain English, codeless test authoring, and 10x more efficiency of test execution will get you there!
